Rainer Kempe called on the button and Alex Foxen raised to 415,000. Kempe glanced at Foxen and then decided to shove while their stacks were pretty even. Foxen snap-called.

Alex Foxen: {a-Diamonds}{q-Clubs}
Rainer Kempe: {4-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}

The flop came {7-Diamonds}{10-Clubs}{9-Diamonds} for Foxen to pick up the backdoor flush draw.

"Eight of diamonds!" Foxen commented for the flush and straight draw.

The turn was the {5-Diamonds} to give Foxen a flush draw indeed but the {6-Clubs} on the river didn't give him that.

The dealer counted out their stacks and determined that Kempe had 3,190,000 behind while Foxen held 3,110,000. As Foxen was covered, Kempe had just eliminated Foxen in 2nd place for $651,980. Kempe claims the first-place prize of $908,100 and the beautiful trophy.

A full recap of today's action is to follow.
